ACE Transcript Service

IEEI provides Accredited Providers with access to the American Council on Education’s (ACE) transcript service, which offers lifetime record and transcript assistance for learners who have completed continuing education and training courses through an IEEI AP.

With ACE’s CEU transcript service, learners can present a nationally recognized transcript to colleges and universities, employers, and licensed professionals. And IEEI APs can keep a detailed record of learners’ involvement in their programs–a key requirement for maintaining AP accreditation.

Providers must pay a fee of $850 to $2,000 to take part in the transcript service, depending on the number of courses submitted to ACE within a calendar year. Individual learners also can register for the service for an initial $40 registration fee and $15 per transcript after the first one, which is free.

To register for the ACE transcript service, send a copy of your AP approval letter to CEU[at]
